A new report has just come out concerning the retention rate of new employees in Japan. A number of different companies were analyzed, and that data was used to find the average retention rate of new employees in Japan as a whole. That figure sits right around the 70% mark, but the situation is extremely different when you look at Nintendo.

While Japan’s average rate of retention for new employees is 70%, Nintendo has a much higher average. After the numbers were crunched, Nintendo is sitting at an extremely impressive 98.8% retention rate. That means for every 100 new employees the company brings on, just one decides to quit.

As you might suspect, a number of different reasons lead to Nintendo having such a high retention rate for new employees. Over in Japan, Nintendo has a considerable package for paid leave, and they also offer a very notable childcare program. Nintendo’s approach to same-sex relationships and diversity are also positive points. That said, it seems one of the biggest reasons Nintendo retains so many new employees is due to those employees really enjoying Nintendo’s work atmosphere, and seeing a job at Nintendo as something to be proud of.

The employees should still unionize. Stop simping for companies.

@theravensrequiem Ordinarily I would agree with you, but I feel I should point out that Japan already has very strong worker protection laws that prevent mass layoffs.
